Rays of Light Orphanage Primary School is located in Kawembe village, Kihungu parish, Kyarumba Sub-county, Kasese District-Uganda.

The enrollment of the school has been increased from 140 pupils up to 200 pupils in this term of 2015

The place where the school is found is in a hilly area and it being a village, it has affected the health of the pupils, since pupils do not have shoes which is not hygienic.

There has been an improvement because clients who receive treatment are not always repeated to be treated unless otherwise.
